EndSARS: PSC say reports of alleged dismissal of  ACP Shogunle, CSP Badmos’s, from Police are fake news.

The Police Service Commission (PSC) on Saturday described as fake news, insinuations and reports of the dismissal of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Abayomi Shogunle and Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Dolapo Badmos from the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

There had been social media reports that Shogunle, a former head of the Police Public Complaint Unit and Badmos a former spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command and later the Zone Two Command were among those dismissed and demoted by the commission.

The reports claimed that a list was submitted by the Presidential Panel on Police Reforms containing names and service numbers of 37 officers alleged to have been recommended for dismissal, demotion, or warning.

However, when contacted,Head of Press and Public Relations, PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, said the news of their dismissal is untrue as the Commission had not met.

His words, “The Commission did not sit yesterday and I am not aware of any dismissal. The Commission meets officially before any decision is taken and it has not met,” he said.

The purported list claimed those affected were Abdulhameed Awodi, APNo119444, Erhabo Uwagbie, APNo86180; Idolor Godsent, APNo158580, Mustpha Abubakar, APNo119167, Idoko, APNo 85036, Ilya Aliyu, AP94982, Asabe Luke, APNo,130296, Angela Akaro, AP No, 50829.

Others are Iyanda Olufemi AP No, 122857, Gajere Taluwai, AP No, 50569, Ehis Oba, AP No, 129595, Edem Michael, AP No, 1256967, Agha AMA, AP No, 119535, Yusuf Lateef, AP No, 36725, Eliaz Casmir, AP No 57688, Oluwafunmilola, AP No, 122864, Mkay Ali, AP No, 111702, Ado Doko, AP No, 46664, Sani Muhammad, AP No, 50679, Adamu Shaba, AP No, 140320, Adamu Bunu, AP No, 42565, Giade Sabo, AP No, 50579, Dattijo Abdullahi, AP No, 87072, Yahaya Shem, AP No, 86216, Tijani Richard, AP No, 46670, Nwamanna Nelson, AP No, 46675.

Furthermore,it listed Oviemuno Richard, AP No, 87501, Anonde Christopher, AP No, 90934, Godwin Agbo, AP No, 95853, Dr. Emmanuel Eze, AP No, 50282, Hassan Hamidu, AP No, 118063, Theresa Nuhu, 59661, Yisa Gana, AP No, 47717, Ekong Sunday, AP No, 63069, Oboh Irene, AP No, 145355, Okoukoin Daniel, AP No, 181311 and Ogedegbe Abraham, AP, 86152.

It was gathered their names might have entered the list because they were reprimanded at one point or the other.

A senior police officer said the report was fake wondering what the duo of Shogunle and Badmos might have done to warrant dismissal.

“Neither of them were in SARS. So, if they are talking about the dismissal of former SARS officers, they should not be among.

“It can’t be true. Maybe they were queried in the past and some type of punishments was allocated to them. Some punishments can be minor, for instance, a warning letter. I am sure it isn’t dismissal for all the names on the list.”
